Subscribe to RSS RSSThursday, 25th February, 2010

This exhibition will be at the Waterhall until 23 May and entry is free. It showcases the work of one of Britain’s best known and respected artists.

Since the mid-1960s Bridget Riley has been celebrated for her distinctive, optically vibrant paintings and is one of the foremost proponents of ‘Op Art’ – a genre of visual art that uses geometric shapes and vivid colours to create optical illusions.

The show includes notable paintings from the start of her career as well as ambitious and powerful works of recent years. One of the highlights of the show is her iconic Movement in Squares, which she created in 1962.

The show also includes a selection of her work on paper which has never been shown in public before.
